William F  Buckley Jr Dies at 82 William F. Buckley Jr., the erudite Ivy Leaguer and conservative herald who showered huge and scornful words on liberalism as he observed, abetted and cheered on the right's post-World War II rise from the fringes to the White House, died Wednesday. He was 82. Editor, columnist, novelist, debater, TV talk show star of "Firing Line," harpsichordist, trans-oceanic sailor and even a good-natured loser in a New York mayor's race, Buckley worked at a daunting pace, taking as little as 20 minutes to write a column for his magazine, the National Review.

Like him or not William F. Buckley brought class unlike today's shrill conservatives (Limbaugh, Coulter etc.)

William F. Buckley was a brilliant man. Rush Limbaugh is a terrific satirist. Ann Coulter is just a loose cannon.

My Great-uncle, Doug Sanna had nothing but praise for him, they went to college together. Doug was a Stock Market Analyst in NY all his life and a strong Conservative all the way. I remember my dad, (who was a Teamster), always made it a point to never discuss politics with him.
